Reviewer: I_like_old_movies - - July 21, 2012
Subject: Odd Ending
This movie had promise, but the script really needed to be tightened up. Too many slow and unnecessary scenes. The acting was not bad. Martha Vickers makes a good rotten chick. Production values were ok. Direction was sub-par. I got sick of the constant playing of the song that the lead guy wrote and which became a "hit". The worst thing about this film is the odd ending. The movie should have ended at the courtroom climax, but instead had one more scene that just leaves you scratching your head. I suspect that some scenes were edited out which resulted in continuity problems. There still weren't enough scenes cut.

Subject: Not bad t'all
Kitty is a rotten woman to the core once she learns how to sucker men into marrying her only to be taken to the cleaners for alimony until she tries to take the wrong sucker to the cleaners and ends up in the ringer herself.
Not bad for a low budget flick somewhat out of date, but it makes me wonder just how deserving many of these guys are when the rotten women sink their claws into them. My guess is that many are very deserving of it.
